Commander: Iran Supporting Expansion of Jihad in Palestine
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Tehran division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) General Mohammad Reza Yazdi said Zionists should know that Iran will support expansion of Jihad on Palestinian lands.

“Our youths have been enrolling in martyrdom-seeking battalions and are ready to encounter cowardly and child-killer Zionist soldiers,” general Yazdi said.

Referring to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech on Friday about the cause of Palestine, Yazdi said, “The world and Muslim people should know that trust in the Arab government and the American-Zionist coalition cannot solve the problem of Palestine.”

He added that the Zionist regime has a lot of memories of the confrontation of Tehran division of IRGC for the past 40 years.

He reiterated, “Just as we strive to uproot the ominous coronavirus, we have put on the agenda the Jihad for eradication of the virus of Zionism.”

The commander stressed that Iranian youths, following the role models of Martyr Ahmad Motavasselian, Martyr Soleimani and Martyr Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, are trying to materialize liberation of Quds and the entire Palestinian lands.

Earlier on Friday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said that the Zionist Virus as the record holder of human evil will soon be eliminated like the coronavirus.

Addressing the worldwide Muslims in a live televised speech on the occasion of the International al-Quds Day on Friday, Ayatollah Khamenei considered the dawn of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and the subsequent emergence of the Resistance Front to be factors that have impeded the "Zionist virus".

He stressed the fact that the Zionist regime, the worst human evil, will be uprooted from the Middle East despite being supported by the United States and its minions, in the not-too-distant future. Without a doubt, the Zionist virus, which is the record holder of human evil, won’t last long, and it will be uprooted

Also on Friday, Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Rayeesi called on the Muslim countries to join in a collective effort to help retain the rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation.

Rayeesi made the remarks in a message to the heads of judiciaries of the Islamic countries on the occasion of the International Quds Day.

"Resistance is the initiative of the Palestinian people to continue their existence," Iran's judiciary chief said.

He noted that the full preservation of the rights of the Palestinian people and the establishment of justice are the main keys for the establishment of lasting peace and stability.

Rayeesi voiced the Iranian Judiciary’s readiness to pursue the realization of this goal and to address the crimes and aggression of Israel in national and international legal tribune with the cooperation of the Islamic countries.

Referring to the seven decades of support by the US and some European countries for the Israeli regime’s barbaric crimes, the Iranian judiciary chief underlined that the "right to self-determination" is an undeniable right of every nation.

The International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel's occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, specially in Iran, as well as a large number of non-Muslim states.

The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.

Due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Iran, the International Quds Day will be commemorated differently without holding gatherings and rallies.
